Bottom Line: However, clinicians often encounter cases where the bonding required for tooth traction is not possible because the adjacent teeth have been restored with ceramic or veneer.The modified appliance was fabricated using an artificial tooth, clear plastic sheeting, and a braided fiber-reinforced composite strip that covered adjacent teeth without bonding.It satisfied the esthetic and functional needs of the patient and established the optimal biologic width.

ABSTRACT
Orthodontic extrusion is usually performed by means of a fixed orthodontic appliance that utilizes arch wire attached to adjacent teeth and transfers the desired force by elastic from the wire to the root. However, clinicians often encounter cases where the bonding required for tooth traction is not possible because the adjacent teeth have been restored with ceramic or veneer. The purpose of this case report is to describe a modified orthodontic extrusion appliance that is useful when conventional orthodontic treatment is not possible. The modified appliance was fabricated using an artificial tooth, clear plastic sheeting, and a braided fiber-reinforced composite strip that covered adjacent teeth without bonding. It satisfied the esthetic and functional needs of the patient and established the optimal biologic width.

Figure 8: Labial aspect of the porcelain-fused gold restoration at delivery.

Mentions: The amount of tooth movement was 1 mm after 1 week, and 2.5 mm after 2 weeks, and the necessary movement of the tooth (approximately 3.5 mm) to achieve the biologic width had been attained after 3 weeks (Figure 7). A two-month retaining period and gingivectomy was planned along with careful periodontal hygiene control, and a new ceramic crown was fabricated on the tooth in concern (Figure 8). The functionality and periodontal support of the restoration have been maintained in good condition for 2 years (Figure 9).
